I Love You to the Moon and Back

A few months ago I was going through a box of old photos and found a few of these amazing pictures of my Grandmother Hakes holding Laurel when she was only two weeks old and Tyler looking on as an almost two year old. My Grandmother had a very debilitating stroke soon thereafter, and I don't have any more pictures of her after that. The beautiful memories from this extraordinary moment make my heart fill with love, and appreciation for this wonderful woman and for the time that I had with her on this earth.
The Togetherness line from Cosmo Cricket was the perfect combination of colors and theme for this very precious photo, and it helps me tell how perfect this little moment was for all of us.
I feel so blessed to have the time and opportunity to scrapbook and preserve memories like these. The stories that we need to tell are so important, and are truly treasures in our lives. I am thinking it is time to go back into my older pictures again and see if I can find a few more treasures that deserve a little extra love...
